CRISTIANO HAS TENDINOSIS IN HIS KNEE
A two-day-old article from Yahoo says that, "tendinosis is a non-inflammatory condition involving a previously injured tendon that heals with weak collagenous fibers, low weight-bearing resistance and has a high risk of future injury". BreakingNews.com describes Tendinosis as, "a degeneration of tendon's collagen due to chronic overuse". And in a June 4 article by Andi Thomas (Cristiano Ronaldo has Tendinosis. What the Hell is Tendinosis?) we learn even more. Listen to what Thomas writes...... "According to tendinosis.org, it's a "chronic injury of failed healing". Basically, it's when a lot of tiny tears to the connective tissue around the tendon start to have a cumulative effect on the strength of the tendon. Think pain, think stiffness, think mild swelling around the left knee. It's not to be confused with the more common tendonitis, which involves inflammation of the tendon itself."
